Hot Courts

Location:     Montclair Courts, Oakland (Mountain at Colton)
Cost:            $2 donation requested

Hot Courts happen every Thursday evening, year-round.  Simply stop by anytime between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. (no partner needed) for some casual and fun doubles tennis.
The exact format varies, but generally consists of four no-ad games followed by a tiebreaker, after which those who had a bye on the previous round are brought in, partners and opponents are switched up, and play begins again.
The cost is only $2.00 per evening, which goes to help defray the costs of court maintenance and repair (nets, windscreens, etc.).

MTA will return to the beautiful Granlibakken Resort at Lake Tahoe for its fall "away" tournament in September. You won't want to miss this weekend of tennis and fun, so sign up soon.

The weekend will include our usual potluck gathering Friday nite, gender tennis on Saturday, Saturday nite banquet, and mixed doubles on Sunday. In addition, 
there are any number of things to do in the Tahoe Basin:  bicycling, hiking, 
swimming, hot tubbing, shopping, boating, touring, or just laying back to enjoy 
the great outdoors.

Non-MTAers are more than welcome to join us for the weekend. Tennis participants 
must be current MTA members.

2BR-2bath and 3BR-3bath condos are being held for us, but reservations must be 
made and paid through Robin Lee. Organize a group for a condo and contact Robin, 
or just let Robin know you want to go and she'll help with the organizing. 2BR 
condos have lofts, sleep up to 6 persons and cost $450+room tax/nite. 3BRs (some 
have lofts) sleep up to 8 and cost $549+room tax/nite. Yes, pricier, but 
accommodations include a GREAT breakfast buffet for all guests every morning. 
On-site amenities include a spa, hot tub, pool, ropes course . . .


Saturday nite banquet:
This will be held in the resort's Cedar Room. Entrees must be pre-selected.

Don't have a partner for tennis? Not to worry, we'll find you one.

If you're not familiar with Granlibakken . . . It's at Lake Tahoe in the 
forested Sierra Nevada mountains, a 4-hour drive from the East Bay. The resort 
is just outside of Tahoe City, about a mile beyond "Fanny bridge."
